Waterfront Gallery in Charleston, SC, Offers Works by Margaret Hall Hoybach

Waterfront Gallery in Charleston, SC, will feature the works of Margaret Hall Hoybach through Apr. 30, 2005. The exhibit entitled, Colors of Spring, will include paintings from both France and the Charleston Lowcountry.

"My love affair with France began 40 years ago when I became enamored with the art of the French Impressionists and in particular with the works of Claude Monet," say Hoybach. "He has always been an inspiration in my work. A turning point in my life came twelve years ago when I took an extensive sabbatical to France to paint in the same areas as the Impressionists. I now spend part of every year painting and teaching in Provence, France. Regardless of the time of the year, the landscape is always an inspiration for me but the colors in spring are especially incredible!"

Hoybach's collection of large Impressionistic floral paintings from the gardens of Monet's Giverny combine integral detail with her personal interpretation. Her smaller works show her journalistic style of painting with watercolor washes and pen and ink. This style, begun during her travels around France, is seen now in her Charleston studies and also became the basis for Hoybach's second book, The Colors of France: A Painting Pilgrimage, which was released in 2002.

Hoybach is a native of Washington, DC. Her background in art includes a degree in fine art from the University of Maryland and advanced studies at the University of California at Davis. A significant portion of Hoybach's professional career has been dedicated to conducting art workshops and seminars around the United States and Europe. She has judged numerous shows in the Southeastern US and is a guest lecturer at colleges and universities. She has an educational television series, The Artistry of Margaret Hall Hoybach, which is produced and shown in the Washington, DC, area. Hoybach and her husband have lived in the Charleston area since 1982.
